7:03 am
captioning funded by cbs welcome to "cbs this morning." we have chilling new details about the mass shooting that killed seven people at oicus university. >> witnesses say he opened fire in classroom telling students get in line, i'm going to kill you all. that suspect is in custody this morning. correspondent lee cowan is there this morning. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. i just spoke with the oakland police chief. he's telling me they're getting a little more information about what may have been going through the shooter's mind. he was a 43-year-old, former stujt at the school. he told investigators late last night he was upset over being expelled a couple of months back. he told them it was for behavioral reasons. he came here to the school looking for the administrator. she was not here. so he turned instead the gun on anyone he could find some of
7:04 am
them at point blank range. witnesses say it was over almost as fast as it began. a hail of bullets in classroom, and the gunman didn't stop there. >> officers found several victims throughout the classroom, throughout the building. there were several people hiding in locked buildings, locked doors, behind desks. >> reporter: it was a slaughter. seven people killed three others were wounded. witnesses say it could have been much worse if he had been able to get into a second classroom but the student locked the door and turned out the lights. s.w.a.t. teams combed for more even as shots were still being fired. >> get down. get down. >> reporter: art richards was across the street and captured the shots on his cell phone. >> when the shots rung out, i got down. i didn't want to be in no crossfire or none of the above. >> reporter: police say when the
7:05 am
shooting ended, goh stole a car, went to a nearby safeway and calmly surrendered to the police. the motive still a mystery. >> this is the kind of incident that hurts a community and will leave the community asking questions for a long time. >> reporter: the private christian school specializes in everything from nursing to asian medicine and caters largely to the asian community. whatever may have led the former student to snap the police say up until now there was no indication of any violence in his past. so far no charges have been filed. we're told that the district attorney may file those charges either today or tomorrow but they believe this former student is their one and only student. charlie, erica, back to you guys. >> lee cowan, thank you very much. it's a big day in the republican presidential race. wisconsin, maryland and the district of columbia are holding their primaries today. >> the key prize here is wisconsin where mitt romney is
7:06 am
trying to put rick santorum behind him for good. national correspondent chip reid is in milwaukee. chip, good morning. >> reporter: well, good morning to you. yes, mitt romney would love to put rick santorum behind him. the problem is santorum is not cooperating. he says he's staying in the race no matter what happens in wisconsin. and now a new dose of bad news for mitt romney, this one in the heds-to-head race with president obama. in green bay, wisconsin monday mitt romney blamed president obama for economic hardships faced by women, including the poor. >> he's responsible for the fact that 30% of single moms are living in poverty with their families. 30%. >> reporter: romney's focus on women follows the release of a new poll in a dozen battleground states that shows the president surging to a nine-point lead 51% to 42%. earlier romney led in those states by two points. what's behind the obama surge, women under 50.
7:07 am
in february, 49% of them supported the president. in march, 61%. during that time romney's support among women under 50 plummet itted from 44% to 30%. but before he gets to president obama, he still has to get past rick santorum. >> we might pull off an upset here tomorrow in wisconsin. what do you think. >> reporter: rejecting republican calls to get out of the race santorum says a long drawn out process would be good for the party. >> i think it would be an energizing thing for our party, a candidate emerges who isn't the blessed candidate of the republican establishment. >> reporter: santorum's latest campaign ad show he's also refusing to heed call from republicans to stop attacking mitt romney. instead he's ratcheting up attacks, comparing him to obama. >> one more thing, what if i told you the man i'm talking about isn't him. it's him.
7:08 am
>> reporter: "the new york times" today called that ad the political equivalent of the nuclear option and with santorum hitting that hard romney simply can't ignore him. charlie and erica? >> chip reid thank you very much. with us now david axelrod, president obama's chief campaign strategist. good morning, david. >> good morning, charlie. >> the president today had a message for the supreme court yesterday. tell us what he is saying when he talks about judicial activism and if he's trying to send a message to the court as it considers this case. >> i don't think he's trying to send a message charlie. i think he was answering a question about what his reaction to last week's proceedings. the president believes that the supreme court will affirm the law because it's in keeping with their precedent not to overturn a law that congress passed of this magnitude, certainly on a 5-4 sort of vote. so he was just expressing his opinion on that but the bigger issue and the one the president
7:09 am
addressed is what the ramifications of such a decision would be in terms of the lives of millions of americans who already are enjoying the benefits of that program, 2.5 million young people on their parents' coverage. 10s of millions who don't face lifetime caps on their insurance when they get seriously hill. seniors getting more help with their prescription drugs. all of that is also in jeopardy here, and the president spoke to the human dimension of this. >> all right.& there's also this. an interview yesterday with -- on sunday with bob schieffer. the vice president, joe biden, consistently said a number of times that mitt romney is out of touch. now, if romney is the nominee, is that going to be the mantra of the campaign by president obama? >> i think it's going to be the concern of the american people. look, you have a guy who wants
7:10 am
go back to the same policies that got us into this disaster. he wants to cut taxes for the very wealthy, cut wall street loose to write its own rules, and he thinks that this somehow is going to produce prosperity, broad prosperity for americans. we've tested that. it's failed. and in his basic orientation toward these economic issues he seemed to be oblivious to the experiences of everyday people. he says we should just let the housing market bottom out. we should have let wall street go bankrupt and so on. and, you know day after day you hear these thing. that's one of the reasons why as chip reported his numbers have plummeted over the course of this primary campaign. >> he's speaking out more strongly. and as you also heard in chip's piece, he believes the president is to blame for a number of single mothers living in poverty. how do you respond to that? >> well, i think it's -- you know, i think the american people will respond to that as it deserves -- the notion that
7:11 am
he's going to heap the entire responsibility for the collapse of the economy in 2008 on the president is ludicrous. we're working through problems that were -- that were developed over a period of years. it's going to take time to get through them. but we're making progress. and the last thing we want to do is go back to the very policies that got us into this jam in the first place. but, you know erica, romney seems to look at the world through a rear view mirror. he wants go back to the policies of the last decade on economic policies. in other stuff he says russia is our greatest foe, he thinks employers ought to decide whether women should get contraceptive coverage, not any employer. if we drill for oil, that will solve our energy problem, no high fuel efficiency. i think he watches "mad men" instead of the evening news.
7:12 am
he's in a time warp. >> one question about 2016. speaker pelosi was with me last night. she said her candidate is hillary clinton. she hopes hillary clinton will run. the former president said yesterday that he would be happy if she ran. do you expect that she'll be a nominee -- will be a candidate for president in 2016? >> well, if she ran, she would be a very formidable candidate. i'm sure she'll be an early front-runner for the race. she's done a spectacular job for the secretary of state. she's been more rehn sont about it. if she decided to run, she would be very very formidable. but my concern, i think the american people's concern right now is this election. we've got a lot of great challenges to face. we're working our way through them. we don't want to go back.
7:13 am
so i think everybody can wait a while to play the speculation game about hillary. >> david you're clearly right but at the same time you've been there and you know what presidential races are like and after discussing the issues it seems like an interesting question to raise at this time. it's great to have you here. i hope we see you a lot during the campaign. >> thank you charlie. looking forward to it. las vegas so no stranger to wild spending fees but it's not supposed to happen at a government conference on the taxpayer taxpayer's dime. bill plante good morning. >> reporter: this is a huge embarrassment. the general administration is the government's landlord and procurement manager. it's supposed to set the standard for efficiency and cost cutting, something that's reported in this case it clearly did not do. the report is jaw-dropping. it reports page after page of
7:14 am
over-the-top spending by general services administration. for instance more than $100,000 just to plan the four-daikon frens in las vegas. 24 bikes for team skper cease cost $75,000. one reception cost $31,000. the entertainment at the conference include ued a mind reader that was paid several,000 dollar, a gsa employee dressed as n a clown suit. all totaled $822,000. taxpayer watchdogs are appalled. >> you'd think it was a birthday party instead of a meeting. >> reporter: the president is outraged. he started a program with the vice president in charge to cut government waste. the president even asked agencies to review money spent on conferences. >> one of the commitments that i made to the american people is
7:15 am
that we would do a better job here in washington in rooting out wasteful spending. >> reporter: martha johnson, the head of the general services administration was supposed to help the president keep that commitment. here's what she said last year. >> people are coming in with a lot of energy to figure out ways of saving money, saving resources, getting rid of any waste in the system. >> reporter: instead she's stepped down and two others have been fired leaving the government to clean up. >> these are the sorts of things that resonate with people and makes them mad. it should make them mad. >> reporter: i'll tell you one person you can expect to hear from. that's mitt romney. that falls into the category of "you can't make it up." they have put four other people on leave and the gma has reformed their accounting practices. >> the united states is offering a $10 million bounty.
7:16 am
he allegedly founded his organization with the help of pakistan's government which is a u.s. ally. more than 166 people were killed in the 2008 attacks. hundreds of others were wounded. as kentucky fans celebrated last night's ncaa championship things turned violent. kentucky beat kansas 67-59. after the win, thousands took to the streets near the campus of lexington, kentucky one man was shot dozens were arrested overnight. police say an argument led to the shooting. the victim is in serious condition this morning. police are looking for the gunman. >> we still do not know who won the record mega million jackpot but in baltimore people can't stop talking about the woman who said she won. nancy cortez is following this mega mystery. >> reporter: mir rande wilson's
7:17 am
claim has brought more scrutiny than currency. >> i don't know what's going on. it's too much. >> reporter: the single mother of seven told the "new york post" this weekend that she won the mega millions lottery but has since calmed up after her co-workers at mcdonald's accused her of reneging on an office lottery pull. >> they're fighting over this with you? >> yeah. >> reporter: she told the "new york post" the winning ticket was bought with a pal, not a pool. it the other was in illinois. the three winners if they come forward will split a record of $656 million jackpot. maryland's mystery winner would walk away with about $105 million after taxes. >> until someone comes forward with the ticket we continue to wait just like everyone else. >> reporter: that's maryland lotto director stephen martino
7:18 am
who says he doesn't even know who won. here's what we know. this was sold outside the 7-eleven in baltimore left l less than four hours before the drawing. the purchase was captured on surveillance video, but several people, women and men, bought tickets around the same time so it's difficult to make out the winner. and because maryland doesn't require that lottery winners go public the victor could remain a mystery forever. for "cbs this morning," nancy cortes milford mill maryland. it's time to show you headlines from around the globe. osama bin laden's widows and two daughters face more time in jail. yesterday they were found guilty on immigration charges. officials say they'll be released at the end of the month and then deported. the orlando sent knell reports five people were hurt when an experimental plane crashed into a supermarket. the twin engine plane took off

over the starbucks strawberry frappuccino and bugs. 26 minutes past 7:00, it is a gorgeous day. a little on the cool side, sharon will have traffic right after marty's first warning weather. >> it is 10 degrees chillier this morning than this time yesterday. let's look at the forecast, we are going to go for a high of 67, a very sunny day start, partly sunny as we move through the late afternoon, now, here is sharon at wjz tv traffic control. >> hi, marty, good morning, everyone, well your morning commute starting to get more problematic, an accident on the harrisburg expresswave expressway in the southbound direction. accident on the inner loop at frederick road and on 95 past the beltway and in the city on orleans. the top side still at full

7:28 am
sun the general assembly has decided to realign the voting cycle with the presidential voting skid. supporters say it will boost turnout and save the city some money. the measure moves the next citywide election to november 2016. there are growing calls this morning for the resignation of the police chief after the deputy chief says he saw his boss breaking the law. he claims the police chief james fare helped john leopold access information on his political opponents and others. the council will vote on a resolution in two weeks time and urge leopold to suspend the chief. rumors continue to swirl around the person who holds that winning megamillions ticket sold in milford mill and worth $105. a mcdonald's employee and mother of 7 has told the post she is the big winner she is not confirming or denies she
7:29 am
has the winning ticket but is just trying to make sense. they say the winning tick
7:30 am
this video is crazy. a truck got stuck on this icy road in norway. they sent a tow truck to move it. as you can see from the video, it didn't work out so well. both trucks slid nearly 200 feet down a mountainside. as the tow truck driver jumped out. thankfully we can tell you both drivers are okay. don't know that i'd be going back on that road any time soon. welcome back to "cbs this morning." jetblue captain clayton os mon. we have the story of his first story. john miller has more.
7:31 am
>> the pictures tell a story of a troubled man surrounded by a small group of family, friends, and co-workers. this is the first we receive of clayton clayton clayton os bun out of the plane. he's been under going psychiatric tests. his wife connye was con forted by friends. captain was on his way to his first court appearance where he would be formally presented with federal charges that he interfered with his own flight crew. along with his wife fellow employers with there. a magistrate will decide on thursday whether to release him on bail. prosecutors have requested that osbon remain in jail because of
7:32 am
the violent nature of his crime, adding there are no conditions of release which will reasonably assure the safety of any other person and the community. if convicted, osbon faces up to 20 years in prison. >> flight 491, we're going have to go to into amarillo. we have an emergency at this time. we're going to need priority and need a few minutes. >> reporter: sources tell cbs news that doctors have not yet given a medical opinion to investigators or to jetblue as to what caused the pilot's bizarre behavior in the cockpit or in the cabin where he had to be subdued with the help of passengers. that will be a key factor in determining whether osbon makes bail. >> so here's the question. what happens on thursday? >> well thursday is going to be, i guess, a much more interesting day than yesterday because that's when the government has to put its cards on the table and say, this is why we think he should or shouldn't be released. right now they're saying he
7:33 am
shouldn't be released here's why we think he's dangerous and the defense will have to counter with here's what we learned from the doctors at the hospital. this is why we think he's okay. under normal standards, he's great candidate for bail because the standard is he likely to commit the same crime again, is he a danger to others and short of him getting into an airplane and having this problem continue, it's unlikely. i think thursday we'll probably get our first glimpse at what the doctors at the hospital determined what went wrong with him. >> when will we have access to what was said in the voice recorder? >> it will be a long time for us. if there's a trial, they'll play that there. that will be what goes along with the co-pilot's testimony. i doubt as i sit here right now projecting forward given the medical issues here that this will ever go to trial. >> do you think that there will be some sort of a settlement or because of what we find out
7:34 am
metticlymet ik mettic -- medically -- >> i think you hittist there. if they can make a good enough case that, a it was a medical proble, and, b, he didn't know right from wrong, the charges go away. you're also following closely the trayvon martin case. there's been talk since day one, why hasn't there been an arrest and where the investigation stands right now. does it change anything in terms of an arrest or investigation when there is so much public scrutiny about the way things are being done? >> we cannot ignore the reality that it puts pressure on the special prosecutor but this issing two conflicting things. if the special prosecutor is going to go about this right, she's going to redo the investigation from scratch and go beyond that from a new independent team of investigators. if they do it the right way, that's going to take time and they've got to push back on the political pressure. one thing that happened they could throw it to the grand jury and let 23 citizens decide. the other thing that could happen and this is what she's indicate shed wants to do.
7:35 am
she'll look at the evidence after the reinvestigation and make the call herself. >> which is she more likely to do do you think? >> make the call herself or throw it to a the grand jury? because it's safer for her to throw it to the grand jury isn't it? >> it is but because everything is a little counterintuitive, if she puts it in the grand jurks everything is secret. there would be accusations that in the grand jury they threw the case. if she makes the call herself, then at least she knows what she's getting, and then a real jury can decide in public under public scrutiny. >> john, thanks. the university of kentucky is college basketball's top team, and we're going to speak with clark kellogg's big game that he called. and james cameron of "the titanic." we'll talk to him. you're watching "cbs this morning."

superior team all season long, a superior team tonight, and the kentucky coronation is complete. champions 2012! >> as we reported earlier, kentucky survived a serious kansas comeback to win the ncaa championship. it is their eighth national title, their first in 14 years. >> cbs analyst clark kellogg called the game and he's with us this morning. good morning. >> good morning, charlie and erica, great to be with you today. >> how does this compare to the ncaa winners? >> i tell you, as far as going back 16 years ago when kentucky won, i compare this team the 2012 version, favorably to that ee '96 version. balanced, versatile. the most impressive thing
7:41 am
outside of its talent was its togetherness. this was really a team all season long, unselfish, and everybody contributed last night nguyening the championship this year. >> and does john calipari prove he's not only a good recruiter but a winning coach? >> he didn't have to prove it to me, charlie and erica. this is obviously validation of that. but he gets guys that are highly talented, supremely talented to play together, to be unselfish, to play hard to get after it defensively, and that to me has always been the mark of an outstanding coach, and john has been there throughout his college career and now he's got a national championship to maybe quiet some of the critics. >> some of those critics we'll talk a little bit about. we mention his recruiting practice and his whole idea of one and done and there's more than one play oren this team expected to be drafted.
7:42 am
of course anthony davis, that everyone is talking about. how does that affect college basketball? >> you know, it's interesting. it's nba rule that requires a player to be removed from high school for one year or more before he's draft eligible. kids who have left right out of high school have gone on to college for the last six or seven years, a small number. but john calipari is about trying to serve elite basketball players while they're at the university of kentucky. that's his focus. he recruits the best player his e can get, he molds them into a team that's looking to pursue a championship. and if they're ready or he feels they're ready to move on one year or two, he'll encourage them to do that. it's not ideal, but it's not outside of the rules, and john calipari has embraced that unlike any other coach in college basketball. >> and how many of his players will go in the first round? >> he's got -- i think his top
7:43 am
six players are all nba-caliber players. of those six, charlie and erica, four, maybe five would be first rounders for sure. perhaps auld six could be. but i would certainly say at least four. >> anthony davis, we mentioned him. he is remarkably gifted as an athlete. i have rarely seen such athleticism on the part of a college player. >> he's unique charlie. he was late being a player. 6'2" a few years ago, had a growth spurt and is remarkable. i've watched him. his poise and his discipline he is really beyond his years in his understanding on testify game and his patience and poise and december palestinian out there on the court, and he's a winner. he's all about his team and doing whatever's necessary to get his team to win.
7:44 am
we sat down with president obama. he's a huge fan. but he got a little more personal. i want to play a piece from that interview. >> watching them play, i want them to do so well. and when something goes right, it is more joy than i ever got. >> no question about it. >> talking there about his daughters sasha and malia, something i'm sure you can relate to too, watching kids out there. >> no question about it. we had the pleasure of watching our son nick playing for ohio university. nick, a prominent player a key player, for my wife and i his & his older brother and sister and other family members it was exciting fun, gave you feelings of pride, joy, gratitude, and more importantly, he's handling his business pretty well off the court, and that's what mom and dad are most proud of. but it was fun to watch him between the lines as well. >> i think if i remember you
7:45 am

8:01 am
erica hill. howard schultz has been noun to stir in some political thoughts speak out on political gridlock in washington. today he's launching a fund to create more jobs in the united states. howard schultz, good morning. >> thanks, charlie. good to be here. >> what do you think can create more jobs? unemployment is a big problem. politicians have not been able to do what is necessary. what do you think you can do? >> let's frame the facts. there are over 13 million americans unemployed a large parjt of the his pangs and african-americans. more than 15 states are facing budget deficits. we're celebrating 8.3% unemployment as a victory. i just can't allow that. so what i'm trying to do is ask the question how can business and specifically starbucks use its skill for good. >> ask a question or demand some kind of performance about this
8:02 am
business to create jobs? >> i think we can't demand performance. what we're try dog is really show other people that business can make a difference. and, in fact we don't want to wait for washington. so for the last few months we've asked our customers to donate $5 to this wristband. there are over 500,000 people in america wearing this wristband. starbucks is giving $5 million, a multiplier by $7 of every million raised and today google and banana republic are joining us. the lens that everyone is looking through re-election has created a situation where we're not getting anything done. >> and that you've spoken about. i have to ask you about that money. it sounds great, 500,000 people spending 5 bucks to wear the bracelet. but where is it actually going to? how is it helping create jobs and employ people? >> so what we found is there ooh
8:03 am
is a network across america of small banks that lend money, low interest loans, and this network, we were able to vet across the country, we're taking the money, putting it in the hands of small banks. one of the fallacies in america is banks are lending again. they're not. despite all the small companies, the engine of employment, 65% of all businesses in america create these jobs, we're getting money in the hands of small banks, lending it to small businesses creating start-ups. and, in fact, 80% of the money we've raised has been out. and we can dockment with great transparency where the money's going and the jobs being created. >> we were talking earlier about social and political responsibility and at the end of last year you said you were not going to donate this season. you donated last time to both sides. you said i'm not doing it this
8:04 am
time. >> i think last summer when we watched the debt ceiling debacle take place and saw a crisis of leadership and confidence in america, i just thought, if $6 billion is going to be spent on the presidential election cycle, $6 billion, isn't there something seriously wrong with the country to allow this go on and not do anything? so we asked 150 like-minded ceos from both sides of the aisle to join us and we stopped donating to incumbents and we did it with civility and respect. i think american people know there's something not right right now. i don't think we can continue to stand by and be a bystander. starbucks is a for-profit company and we understand that. we need to establish a balance between profitability and responsibility. >> have any other other
8:05 am
candidates reached out to you to say, hey, let's talk about this? >> i did hear from the president. we had a very respectful conversation. under what i was doing, and thing we were able to describe the fact that we just feel we can't be a bystander and he accepted it. >> what did he plan to do based on the conversation you had? was there an action plan coming from the white house? >> no there wasn't. >> secondly are you hiring today? >> not only are we hiring charlie, we announced we're building a new coffee roasting facility in augusta, georgia, and we're starting a plant that's going to make stoneware for starbucks. not only are we hiring people in our stores and opening new stores but we made the decision which is somewhat less profitable to build a new facility in america and create jobs. >> and do you think other companies ought to follow suit in the same way? create ways to expand and hire people and find jobs? >> the fact that we're down to 9
8:06 am
million manufacturing jobs in america and we have 30 million people working for government it's tomb for american business to do its part. >> is there any pushback from investors who say that's really not why we invested in starbucks. we want to see you make lots of money so that the stock prees will go up? >> that you can do it cheaper overseas. >> i think there would be but the companies in the last 12 months has had record revenue and record profits and yesterday hit an all-time high. thing in large part because we demonstrated it and embraced the values of social responsibility. >> doing good for america is doing good for business. >> that's exactly right. >> i love the message that it sends. there's a big brouhaha about the strawberry frap chino. you know where i'm going, howard. strawberry frappuccino. i know it's not as grisly as it sounds. that's why i think you should clear it up. >> no good deed goes undone.
8:07 am
>> maybe grisly is too strong a word. creepy. >> we tried to embrace an all-natural method for this product. in fact, we discovered most women in america wearing red lipstick. >> what you talking about, willis? >> it's a crushed up beetle you're using for food coloring that and we're examining it and probably will reformulate it. >> because this is no longer to get a strawberry frappuccino with so i milk it's no longer vegan. are you investigating beets or -- >> we're going to make the right decision. >> you say don't worry. nearly a decade after venturing into europe starbucks is still laboring to lure people to to drink your coffee despite engineering a strong turnaround in the u.s. and growing steadily
8:08 am
in asia. starbucks is still a novelty. the company struggled hero on the continent, think paris, to the country they gave birth to cafe and coffeehouse cultures. >> that's true. despite the success we're having in china, we have struggled in europe on the continent. i think in large part the economic environmental is so tough, but we're there for the long run. >> and employees get health insurance. >> we've provided first 20 good morning, temperatures right now are approaching 40 degrees. it is going to be a nice day. sunshine right now, going for a high of about 67 degrees. now frankly overnight we will cloud up. temperatures only go to 46. about 10 degrees warmer in the past overnight. tomorrow we will see it get up to 72. humidity, watch for showers.

"the wall street journal" has the latest on linsanity. that, of course, is the new york knicks' jeremy lin tweeted his photo as he recovered from knee surgery in a new york hospital. what do you think? is it tmi? too much information? some people think so. >> i don't think it's bad. >> he also tweeted praise god for a successful surgery. lin is expected to be out for & six weeks. >> it is the end of the road for a grandmother and her classic car. 93-year-old rachel beach has been ordered to stop driving because she's legally blind. probably a good reason. that means she's going to have to give up her 1964 mercury comet. it has 564,000 miles.

8:16 am
turns out it's not always so harmless. in fact, according to a new study, eating fried foods evenen a regular basis doesn't necessarily lead directly to heart disease. it turns out it's the type of oil used that really matters. researchers in spain followed 40,000 people in 14 years and found the amount of oil they consumed made no significant difference in heart disease, but here's the thing. in spain people tend to fry fresh in unsaturated or sunflower oil. this is the benefit to switching to healthier oils from saturated fats like butter lard or palm oil. don't heat it up just yet. they contain higher calories and are linking with salt and high blood pressure and obesity. i'm dr. holly phillips. >> announcer: cbs "healthwatch"

wake up this morning and welcome. welcome back to "cbs this morning." we all know how important it is to take control of your life. that's easy to talk about but not so easy to do. >> you have to do it. educator and business consultant stedman graham lays out a step-by-step process to reach your goals. it is in his latest book called "identity: your passport to success success." >> we want it, so help us. >> most people are stuck in a box. >> that's in every way, not at in terms of the television box. >> they're stuck in a box doing the same thing over and over. if you do the same thing as yesterday, what do you do?
8:31 am
nothing. the educational system teaches you how to memorize and take a test. if you're asked two weeks later what have you got, nothing. nothing plus nothing is nothing. so i con temded you have 6.5 billion people who don't know who they are. that i have no process for organizing their life. >> the population of the world. >> they have 24 hours. that's what makes you equal. the question is how you organize the 24 hours around yourself so you can be a learner. >> but stedman, you talk northbound the book about for many years you didn't know who you were. you were very candid about that. you talk about labels self-imposed, some of them and labels that others put on you. growing up what were some of the ways you were labeled and how that led you to your journey -- >> i had a race-based conscience i thought it was about race and the government. you turn your power over to them to define who you are.
8:32 am
wrong. secondly i thought it was about two disabled brothers. i thought it was about my family. wrong. and my relationship with oprah, you know people put me in the box, you know they define me by who she is and she's a wonderful person and great woman, but that's not -- i'm not oprah. that's who she is. that's not me. wrong. and so the ability to be able to, again, not be defined by your race, your family your gender, your religion your house, your car, your job, your relationship, all those things that are socially constructed to make your think that's who you are so that the world can control the way you think. and so the process of developing yourself is a leadership process, which is you've got to transform your thinking from a follower to a leader from a consumer to a producer from a slave to an owner, especially in the 21st century. >> but then how do you --
8:33 am
because as you point out -- we're sew focused on defining ourselves by these titles and categories that are out there, whether i'm a journalist i'm a mother, a wife a woman. how do you break away from what we've so long established is in fact, our identity to figure out who you are? >> well you take control of your development. and the way the system is set up it's hard to really learn. if you're memorizing taking tests, repeating information bark back, and then you can't source information relevant to your talents, your skills your passions, what you love. so it's more of an external process, which is how we define ourselves as opposed to an intarrant development process of taking the 24 hours, taking information, the world is a collection of unlimited wealth of information and making that information relevant or sourcing that information so it's compartmentalized in your family, in your spiritual life in your hobbies, in your skills in your talents, in your strength so you can develop
8:34 am
yourself. >> so part of that you say is really looking what we read and how that influences -- >> a lot of information today. what are we doing with the information? we're texting all day long. what are we talking about? nothing. >> the central point here is you have to be active in finding out who you are. you have to be active in finding out yourself. it's a proactive process to get there. >> charlie exactly right up. you have to be conscious. so what i'm doing with this book, identity, is to get people conscious of the in fact you have an identity and not a socially constructed box that people put you in that label you, that define your existence, your destiny, your family and who you are. >> you talk a lot, too, stedman, i've heard you over the years, about vision and leadership. over the years, oprah and i talk, vision and leadership, and then the other day i heard, wow, stedman is on to vision and leadership? she's such an "i told you so"
8:35 am
person. >> you have a vision for the united states of america. they're lost. you have a -- >> wait a second. we have to relish in this stedman, because it's so rare that oprah admits that you know, maybe she was wrong. so it with us areal sweet moment the other day when she said maybe stedman is onto with something with vision and leadership. >> the good book says where there is no vision the people perish. so if you can't see beyond your box, then you're going to be in poverty for the rest of your life. you're going to be stuck and the reason you're stuck, you're doing the same thing over and over which give get use the same results. >> when she brings you these kind of handwritten notes, you've got to watch out. >> she's good. you're prepared. >> you always say success is a process. >> right brain is emotional, right brain is big picture, right brain is vision. i need process to succeed. when i discovered that, i said oh, my goodness and having a sports background, which is more
8:36 am
